Military enlistment has long been a viable postsecondary option for students. Now, enlistment in the armed forces counts as a college, career, and military readiness (CCMR) indicator in Texas’ new A–F accountability system.
This summer, we relaunched the Texas OnCourse Academy. The Academy is our comprehensive online platform for professional development. With the Academy, all educators can access the tools they need to support any student on any opportunity after high school.
Our Leader Fellowship is a program that celebrates and harnesses the best and brightest in Texas college and career readiness education. This group of teachers, advisers, and counselors from across the state share a deep commitment to the success of Texas students. We’re pleased to welcome our third cohort of Leader Fellows to the Texas OnCourse family!

In May, our career focus is on law, public safety, corrections, and security! We look to educators like you to help us collect stories for Share Your Road based on these specific career clusters. Do you know any fellow Texans working in these fields?
Everybody knows that educators – especially counselors and advisers – are superheroes. These professionals center their lives around service and the gift of knowledge. They wear many different hats on any given day, and have a seemingly infinite amount of patience, to boot.
